Grades K-12 | Activities Your Kids Will Love!
It is found that regular participation in high-quality afterschool programs is linked to significant gains in standardized test scores and work habits as well as reductions in behavior problems among disadvantaged students. (University of California at Irvine, 2007) At Stemtree Education Center, we believe that every student is different. We identify each student’s specific needs and offer a personalized and self-paced curriculum, teaching science and engineering workout plans.

The Stemtree monthly program offers K-12 students a chance to review, learn, and apply basic sciences through its engineering, science, and technology workouts. Students can attend our center once a week for 90 minutes or twice a week for 50 minutes.
We conduct an assessment for each subject to ensure that we maximize your child’s time at Stemtree and customize a learning plan corresponding to his/her previous experiences and knowledge level. Our customized learning plans, along with our extremely flexible scheduling, guarantees that no material will be missed if a student is not able to attend a session. The session can be made up another day.
After School Program with Pick Up:
Stemtree offers an After School Program with pick up at local elementary schools. We pick up students from school and transport them to our location. Our program gives students a chance to understand the importance of academics and gives them opportunities to apply their basic sciences. It keeps your child engaged, active, and entertained. It also provides him/her a relaxing and fun environment after a long day at school.
We limit our pick up to only 15 students so space is limited. Our program is filled on a first-call, first-served basis. Parents’ pick up time from our location is at 6:00 pm.
At Stemtree, we aim to build confidence in the fields of science, technology, and engineering to ensure success in a society increasingly focused on STEM. Research shows that tutoring is a great way to support learning and makes a significant difference in a child’s life. With our unique one-on-one tutoring, coupled with our stimulating, customized curricula and dedicated tutors, we can make that difference.
Our science curriculum consists of topics ranging from the basic life and physical sciences to biology, chemistry, and physics. In technology we teach basic to more advanced programing for all ages regardless of their experience level. Our engineering curriculum introduces students to the world of robotics – from building to programming – and offers instruction in the fields of electricity and electronics.
Stemtree also offers K-12 homework and exam support and SOL, AP, and IB exam prep. No matter what your child’s tutoring needs are, Stemtree has the answer!
After School Program:
Stemtree’s after school Science, Technology, and Engineering programs are coordinated through the PTA/PTO of local elementary schools. The after school program introduces and/or enhances the understanding of key concepts while creating a fun and engaging atmosphere. It emphasizes learning through fun while offering an opportunity for young students to be introduced to science and engineering in an environment where they can explore and be creative in the learning process.
Each program may run three, 6-12 week sessions during the school year: Fall, Winter, and Spring. Once the program is contracted with the school PTA/PTO, the PTA program coordinator provides the school procedures and details on the program prior to the start date.
Our camps are not structured in a traditional classroom setting. At Stemtree, we provide all students one-on-one instruction. This customized learning style is considered a highly effective learning environment for students. One-on-one instruction allows students of all abilities to become confident and capable learners and allows for a high quality individualized interaction between the teacher and the student.
Our camp includes science workouts and experiments, computer programming, and engineering. Each student will take an assessment at the beginning of the program in order to gauge his or her level to create a customized learning program.
Birthday parties at Stemtree are sure to create a long lasting experience for your child and his/her friends. Parties are geared to ages 6 and up and allow children and parents the opportunity to become immersed in Science and Engineering.
Birthday participants are first introduced to the science lab where they will conduct some customized science experiments. But, the excitement doesn’t end there. Our party participants will then divide into groups to design, build, and program their own robots and compete in our various birthday robot tournaments!
Birthday parties will be held at the center Saturdays at 3:30 pm.
